Before school?  I thought I remembered Laura saying that we won't until 1-2 weeks into the semester.

I think it may depend, also, on your specific lender.  But I could be wrong.

FYI, I emailed Laura to find out about finaid disbursements.

Text of her reply:

In the perfect world, the Stafford will credit your student account on 8/19,
with the remaining balance mailed out to you, hopefully, by the first day of
class. Private loan checks will be sent to the university on 8/19 by the
lender via US mail.  Once we receive the check, it must go through 2 offices
to be logged in.  Hopefully it will be ready for you to pick up by the
Wednesday or Thursday of the first week of class. Start checking with me
then.

Thanks UH Super-sleuths! All of your info is so appreciated.

By the way, it is an ABA rule that all full time 1Ls have classes EVERY DAY M-F.

So, July is quickly going by and there's all this rain! If it's clear, I'm thinking I'll have a little UH/Houstonites shin-dig on 7/23 or 7/30. And then of course the one during orientation. Anyone have any preferences?

I stumbled upon this link, it has very useful info.

Has anyone received anything from UHLC yet?   

I saw the course schedule for the Fall on the UHLC web site.  No classes on Friday!! sweet.  Also, no classes before 9:00 am and only one class on Thursday.  I can't wait.


Hmmmm.  I thought there was a class on Friday.  Are you sure?

Ooops.  One class on Friday.  Sorry.  Depending on the section either 10-11:30 or 1-2:30  something like that.

Ooh! Ooh! I want the early class on Friday so I can study when I get home and the rest of my day is free. I'm crossing my fingers. This is LS, so I guess I have to get used to not having a choice in the schedule . . .

I am moving on the 30th so I will prolly not be able to make either one.  >:(

Well, you'll be here for the one I'm having for 8/17 for orientation. :) And who knows, we'll probably get together and go out for drinks too. Don't worry, you won't be at a loss for UHers. . .
